On December 29, cruise missile launched by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation violated Polish airspace during an attack on targets in Ukraine.

 

The incident occurred at 7:12 AM local time near the Poland-Ukraine border. According to the Polish Armed Forces, the missile re-entered Ukrainian territory after approximately three minutes in Polish airspace.

 

 

The missile’s flight path was continuously monitored by both Polish and allied radar systems. Polish air defence systems were on standby, and F-16C/D fighter jets were dispatched to patrol the area where the missile crossed into Polish airspace.

Additionally, to verify radar data, ground forces, air forces, and territorial defence troops were deployed to track the missile’s trajectory on the ground.

This incident was part of a larger Russian attack involving twelve Tu-95MS bombers, each launching Kh-55/Kh-555/Kh-101 cruise missiles. Over 90 missiles of this class were used in the attack, with the majority reportedly intercepted by Ukrainian air defences.
